Average gender pay gap
The average gender pay gap is expressed as a percentage of men's earnings. A positive percentage figure shows that, typically or overall, men are paid more. A negative pay gap indicates that women are paid more.
Gender pay gap as a mean average

The mean average gender pay gap that we reported last year was 5.97%
The mean average is useful because it takes into account the low and high earners and gives a good overall indication of the gender pay gap. However, very large or small rates of pay can dominate and distort the calculation.

By identifying the wage of the middle earner, the median is considered the best representation of the typical gender difference.
Bonus gender pay gap
The bonus pay gap calculation includes all bonus payments made between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022.
Our Pay Policy has no provision for bonus payments. However, a one-off discretionary honorarium payment can be made to employees that demonstrate an exceptional level of performance. Such payments, while extraordinary and therefore infrequent, have been determined as meeting the definition of bonus pay under gender pay gap legislation.
During the period between 1st April 2021 and 31st March 2022, 13 staff (5 men and 8 women) received one-off honorarium payments.
The proportion of men and women receiving bonuses: 2.4% of male employees received a one-off honorarium payment when compared to 2.96% of female employees.
- Average bonus gender pay gap as a mean average: 33.82%
The mean average one-off honorarium payment made to females in the period was £913.25. The average payment to males was £1,380.
- Average bonus gender pay gap as a median average: 30%
The median one-off honorarium payment made to females in the period was £350. The median payment to males was £500.
